Links to More Than 100 Apple Crafts!

A worm, crafted from a paper chain, wiggles his way down the face of a vividly colored paper apple. With the
combination of several ordinary tools plus materials found at any grocery or drug store, your child can craft
fun and easy apple projects for fall displays and school assignments.
      Above is one of many paper apple crafts posted at Thrifty Scissors. Here I have combined several craft methods used by early learning teachers to develop the small motor skills of their young students. You will need the following supplies to make the apple craft shown above.
  • a large white paper plate
  • green, red, black and pink markers
  • a pale or lime green paper
  • goggle eyes
  • pinking shears 
  • regular scissors also
  • brown and green construction paper
  • white glue
This video, by lolipuru shows how to craft a simple paper chain. 

Directions for the paper chain worm:
  1. Students may cut strips of paper using the pinking shears. This will give their worms a ruffled look. The number of strips will determine the length of their worms. Of course, the more links they add to the worm, the more practice students get at manipulating paper. I made the above worm from small half inch wide strips and looped these together into a very tight chain fold because I liked the look. If your classroom glue is not very tacky, teachers may wish to ofter students transparent tape to hold the loops together.
  2. Students must loop and paste each link into the previous link in order to craft a continuous linked chain. 
  3. When they have completed their worms to the desired length, instruct them to cut out a small round head for each worm and glue on the goggle eyes. 
  4. Draw smiles on the worm faces and then paste the paper heads to the last link on each chain. 
Directions for crafting the paper apple: 
  1. I suggest cutting apple shapes from a large white paper plates for this particular paper project. I could have used a red paper plates but this would have eliminated the coloring practice that my students needed. Some of you who are working with very young children may opt for this strategy. 
  2. Suggest the coloring of the white paper plate either red, green or yellow. Depending upon the personal preferences of each student.
  3. Then give each student brown and green scraps of construction paper to cut leaves and a stem for their paper apples. Attach these with school glue.
  4. Attach the paper chain worm with glue as well.
      Cutting, pasting, folding, coloring, and even twisting paper are the most popular and inexpensive practices included in this helpful listing for educators. Apple crafts and activities in during the Autumn months are quite common in classrooms all across the United States.
